Course of the lesson:
1. Greetings in the circle.
– Hello guys, I am very glad to see you. Today our meeting is called “Carpet of Peace”. Because at the end of this meeting we will build together a carpet of good understanding and listening to each other.
– Tell me, do you like to praise yourself?
– Now I suggest that you do
Exercise 1 “Self-Praise”.
– We will call your name, and praise yourself for some deed, for your appearance, for a character trait, etc. I think each of you can find something to praise himself for.
– My name is Tatyana Gennadyevna, and I praise myself for being a good hostess and loving guests in my home, i.e. I am a hospitable …
Next, the children introduce themselves….
– Guys, who has had a hard time praising themselves?
– Why is it harder to praise yourself than someone else?
2. – Well done, and now
– Raise your hands if you are in a good mood;
– clap your hands for those who have friends in class;
– raise your hands for those who are confident;
– clap hands for those who know what we are going to do today;
– raise your hands for those who don’t know what we’re going to do today.
3. Today you will participate in a psychological training session. You will have the opportunity to test yourselves by doing different tasks, but don’t forget about the rules. There is also one condition in the training – the task counts if all participants complete it. And it is important not who does it better or faster, but that everyone does it. But first I want to tell you a parable:
“In a village, the head of a large family was dying. He was a respected man who had lived a long life and many relatives gathered at his bedside. He asked for a broom and invited his sons to break it. Each of the sons tried to do it, though they were all strong men. None of them succeeded. Then the father asked them to cut the wire that bound the broom and suggested that his sons break the scattered bars. They easily did so. Then the father said: “When I am gone, stick together, and you will not be afraid of any trials. But one by one you can easily be broken, like these rods.”
In today’s training, we’re going to see how well you can act together. Listening to each other. So, let’s begin.
4. main part.
Exercise 2 “Line Up.”
I’m sure you can line up quickly and easily.
And I will ask you to line up (you have to do it silently):
After the performance, there is a brief discussion on the questions:
– How did you agree?
– Who helped?
– Who helped?
– Who led? etc.
Exercise 3 “Let’s talk with our hands”.
I suggest you all break into pairs and stand against each other, close your eyes, stretch your arms out, and find each other’s hands by touch. Try to communicate with your hands:
– say hello with your hands;
– push each other’s hands together;
– warm each other’s hands;
– clap your hands.
Now open your eyes and switch with each other and do this exercise again. You can do it in a circle with everyone else.
After this exercise, it is necessary to pay attention to the emotional feelings of children while doing the task.
– Who found it easy to do this task?
– Who found it difficult?
Exercise 4, “Kochki”.
Now here’s the situation. You have a swamp in front of you. You must cross it, but you can only move around on bumps. If someone steps into the swamp, the exercise starts all over again.
The group stands in a row, holding hands. The children have to walk in a chain through the “swamp” on the bumps. The important thing is not to go quickly, but to do the conditions correctly and to work together.
In a circle there are cards with the words: (Gene Berwbe)
“the strength of the team” “support”
“reliance on others” “trust”
“overcoming fear” “problem solving”
“following the rules” “togetherness”
Circle discussion on the carpet.
– What did you experience while doing the task? Please select the cards that correspond to how you felt. What made the exercise successful? Explain your choice.
Final Exercise 5 “The Gift”
Now please stand in a circle, count in order, and remember your number. Here in this room, there is a small gift for each of you. Remember your number, under the same number you will find your gift. And remember, nothing is random. What your gift says is meant for you. Everyone finds a sheet in the room with a wish written on it .
Examples of wishes:
1. You have to stay calm to be in control.
2. Respect other people’s feelings.
3. Any problem can be solved.
4. Don’t be angry, smile.
5. Start your day with a smile.
6. Be more confident in yourself, in your abilities.
And now we will all collect our wishes on the carpet together.
The children glue the leaves on a large rug made of paper.
Look at what we’ve got, you’ve chosen a gift and weave a carpet that combines your wishes, your participation, and your support and help for your friend in a difficult moment.
And now we’re going to do the last exercise in our meeting today, “Applause. Give yourselves an applause as if you are pleased with yourselves, so that you can hear if you enjoyed your time with me today or not.
If the children applaud loudly, it means they liked it……
If they clap softly, then……….
– Thank you guys so much for a great time with you. All the best, you are a very friendly class, stay that way. Goodbye.
